Great sound, but mutes with low sound input

N. Gomez, Amazon
4 weeks ago
  • Summary: Great sound in a compact setup. Unfortunately, the speakers are frustrating to use when they mute when a certain sound input level is below a threshold. Not sure if the issue is particular to my hardware, but the speakers appear to enter a "power-save" mode and go mute when sound produced by my computer is below a certain level (unfortunately that level is not low at all). Low sounds come out perfectly fine from headphones while these speakers completely mute.

Issue with low volume input

DutchAndre, JBL

  • Excerpt: I had the II version for 8 years, and lovef them. So when they broke, I bought those. The stupid thing is that when input volume is too low, thet switch off! Else they would be perfect.

Decent speakers bad function with design not being able to disable energy saver.

Danny, Amazon
15 July 2014
  • Summary: Satellite speakers have a higher tin-like (high treble) output but generally acceptable for a 2.1 computer speaker. The one thing I wish I knew in advance was that there is a energy saving feature that you cannot turn off so if the speakers do not detect any volume it stays off. Good for power but not good for quick sounds from the computer like alerts, notifications that do not give the speakers enough time to come out of sleep mode.

Definitely not as good as the Creature 2

Amazon Customer, Amazon
13 February 2014
  • Summary: I have the Creature 2 and I bought the Creature 3 for my boyfriend. The Creature 2 is excellent, it's solid, sound is great and has lasted for over 6 years. The Creature 3 is much lighter, feels cheaper, and the subwoofer rattles when you play very base heavy music or sounds, even with the base turned down to the lowest setting. It seems ok on anything that does not require heavy base. Returned the Creature 3, wish they still made the Creature 2.

You won't be disappointed.

Cliff, Amazon

  • Summary: I love these speakers. It looks quirky, which I like. It has bass and treble controls. It has plenty of power. Plus, when I want a lot more bass, it delivers. My only criticism is that the volume control is a set of two touch-sensitive buttons on the right speaker. I would have preferred a knob.

They cheapened the product from Creature II - don't buy

Fabio Madonna SD, Amazon
16 November 2013
  • Summary: I had a creature II and it was much more powerful and high quality. This Creature III is much smaller, and flimsy, and the sound feels very cheap and not deep. I will return this equipment, do not buy it!!!

can't do without this item

Bootsie, Amazon
17 August 2013
  • Summary: This is the fourth time I have purchased this product-the first time my younger son "borrowed" it and didn't return it. I bought another and gave it to my teenage niece after she begged me for it. I then bought it again but ended up giving it to my other son out of a a sense of fairness since I had given one to his brother. I plan to keep this one or else I will have to buy another.

The sound is better than my home surround sound with five speakers.

Lance Hicks, Amazon
15 August 2013
  • Summary: Anyone with an apartment for your TV or someone that likes to hear quality sound/music from the computer should look into the Creature. Love the crystal clear tones.
